Great Rivers Greenway and the City of St. Louis will cut the ribbon on the recently expanded St. Vincent Greenway during Missouri History Museum’s Twilight Tuesday Oct. 3.
The 1.9-mile St. Vincent Greenway trail connects Forest Park with Trojan Park in Wellston. Currently the greenway is divided into two segments. The southern end stretches from Forest Park to Trojan Park in Wellston, linking together the neighborhoods, businesses, and attractions in between; while the northern segment stretches between the North Hanley Metrolink Station, through the University of Missouri-St. Louis Campus, to St. Vincent County Park. When complete, the St. Vincent Greenway will stretch 7 miles from Forest Park to the North Hanley MetroLink Station.
Great Rivers Greenway will celebrate the expansion during the Missouri History Museum’s free Twilight Tuesdays concert, which will feature music by Project X - A Tribute to New Edition. Families are invited to stop by for an evening of free music and activities from 6-8 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting during intermission at 6:45 p.m. Visitors can explore the expansion and meet with staff from Great Rivers Greenway to learn more about projects in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County.
“It’s fitting to celebrate the expanded St. Vincent Greenway where it connects to one of our region’s crown jewels—Forest Park,” said Great Rivers Greenway Chief Executive Officer Susan Trautman. “Twilight Tuesday is also a great time to introduce the community to this vibrant new space that links together neighborhoods, entertainment districts, schools, businesses, shopping, transit stops and the new Loop Trolley.”
